The reason behind Meghan Markle's starting a new instagram account
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up their own Instagram page some time ago, and they will use it to share the issues most crucial to their hearts. No one knows the exact details of their new account, but it will be great to have Meghan back on social media. It is not the same her previous accounts, which she closed after announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, but she can use it to affect change. Let's find out more!
CHANGING HER IMAGE
At this point, the Instagram page does not have much, and it is still unclear whether it will be all seriousness or a little on the humorous side. However, having a social media presence could help the couple connect with their fans, and also changed their perception of the Duchess. The former actress’ image has taken a nosedive in the past months for several reasons.
The rumors about feuding within the family, breaking royal protocol and having a bad attitude have plagued the media. Additionally, Meghan has been the victim of racist comments online, and even the palace has taken measures to stop it. However, this is a dramatic difference compared to how she was viewed last year right before her wedding to Prince Harry.
According to a recent poll by YouGov, Meghan is not the most popular royal family member, although a lot of people are interested in her life. The inquiry discovered that Harry is the most liked royal family member, while the Queen ranked in second place. Prince William fell in third place, and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, is number four.
The Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, ranked in the fifth position, and Meghan was sixth. It might be disheartening for her to know about her standing with the public. However, scandals tend to cause those problems despite how happy Prince Harry looks lately. She is even giving him his first child, and the couple could not be closer.
THEIR INSTAGRAM IS A STRATEGY
Although the media hounds them for negative stories, the couple should be happy that their account reached one million Instagram followers in just six hours – a new record. It is a great indication for Meghan Markle as she might be getting out of her slump soon. But, she also knows that her husband’s popularity among the people influenced those results.
In America, it is crazy to think that Meghan is not that liked because everyone writes about her constantly and pays attention to everything regarding her life. Of course, it would be better to discuss positive things instead of speculation regarding internal issues in the family and other bad things. It is also clear that juicy headlines and controversial topics always attract more attention.
Unfortunately, most people might not realize how much words truly hurt someone. They think that the anonymity of the Internet gives them free rein to say whatever they want, but that is not the case. Comments can hurt a person deeply, and we have to strive not to judge others until we have walked a mile in their shoes.
The new account could be used as a public relations tool, but she cannot reveal too much on it. That would end up breaking royal protocol once again. Additionally, if she did, it would spawn more gossip about her life, and it is just not worth it. Meghan and Harry have to think twice before uploading anything because everyone wants to see what happens next. They might have hired a community manager or another professional to handle everything and advise them.
WILL MEGHAN HERSELF USE IT?
Prior to joining the royal family, Meghan was an avid writer on her blog called “The Tig”, and her fans know that she has a way with words. Whatever she posted online had an impact, but she is even more famous globally now than when she was an actress on the TV series ‘Suits’. Furthermore, the Duchess was known for speaking up about politics and civil rights.

We are excited to announce that The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2020. The pair have been developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform. The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive. This commitment builds on The Duke of Sussex’s long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve. His Royal Highness has spent many years working with communities throughout the UK and young people across the Commonwealth to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and broaden the conversation of mental wellness to accelerate change for a more compassionate, connected and positive society. Quote from HRH: “I truly believe that good mental health - mental fitness - is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive - sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”
Sadly, she had to stop addressing those issues after marrying Prince Harry because the nobles have to maintain an element of neutrality. However, the former actress can use this platform in other ways that will still influence the world. With the current climate around the world, it is likely that Meghan will favor fighting against women’s struggles.
However, fans hope that she will also add some things regarding Baby Sussex, who will be born anytime soon. On the other hand, it is hard to tell if Meghan can use the social media page to connect with her fans better. It would be unrealistic to think that the former actress will be able to express herself freely online. If the royal family gets in trouble, she probably won’t be allowed to talk about anything.

She will have to coordinate with royal aides and other employees to manage the account, but hopefully, this will change the way the blue blood family has always felt about social media. If she pens down heartfelt and encouraging message online, will the Queen approve? Could she use it as a platform for clearing up misconceptions about her royal family?
Additionally, opening herself up to the public could also mean that more hateful remarks are coming her way. But, sometimes, you just have to take risks to change the world, and Meghan is facing her tarnished image headfirst and with confidence. At the very least, that is something anyone can admire. Even the Queen recently posted something on Instagram.
Of course, no one expects her to use the page to post memes, pictures of cute cats, or even daily updates of her life as she did on the blog. But, this Instagram was opened for a reason aside from their household split, and surely the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have something planned for it. It might be the best way to find some independence within their own little family without the constant pressure of royalty.
Moreover, it could lead other royal members into a more modernized look of the world. Let us know what you think about their new account. If you liked this article, share it with your friends who want to connect to the royal family better. See you next time!
